A frame that leads to freedom. The GR 260 allows you the freedom to roam almost anywhere without adhering to the rules of traditional cycling categories. With adventure oriented geometry, and loads of tire clearance, this model blurs all the lines, conquering any manner rough roads, gravel and mixed surfaces. The GR 260 features a 1 ¾” biaxially ovallized downtube rounding out a butted, 3AL-2.5V aerospace grade titanium tubeset. Added to an adventure geometry that is designed for the rider to be in the cockpit rather than on the bike, and clearance for 700c x max 45 or 27.5 x max 2.1" tires, this model is capable of taking riders over any variety of terrain in all-day comfort.

Note: This model is designed based on a 700c x 42 or 27.5 x 2.1" wheel/tire combo, which theoretically maintain the same outside diameter. Actual measurements vary greatly from one manufacturer to another. Running larger or smaller tires will affect BB height and trail.
